This cemetery is located in Johnson Township about 1-1/2 miles northwest of Flemington 
(NW-1/4 Section 12, Township 35, Range 24). In 1979, the cemetery was in poor condition 
and not accessible by car. Cecil Crawford, of Weaubleau, took us to the cemetery which 
was overgrown with tall grass. He carried a snake stick, knife, and anti-venom. Due to the 
age of the stones and the difficulty in reading them, the dates should be verified with 
church and death records when possible. There is an adjoining slave cemetery, but no 
stones were located.  Traces of an old fence were barely visible. Mr. Crawford said that 
on the other side of this fence was a Slave Cemetery but there were no stones.
